The line-up for this year's Glasgow Frightfest was announced this week. Opening with Josiah Allen and Indianna Bell's psychological mystery You'll Never Find Me, which sees a request for shelter on a dark and stormy night turn into something much more unsettling, it will close with Alan Scott Neal and Taylor Sardoni's tale of small town desperation, The Last Straw. Brazilian newcomer Tiago Teixeira delivers paranoid erotic in Custom and Ireland's Paul Duane explores the ethics of ethnology and the power of music in All You Need Is Death, one of the most talked-about horror films of the year to date.

Other highlights include Wake Up, an environmental slasher from Turbo Kid team RKSS, and Mike Hermosa’s joyously silly splatterfest The Invisible Raptor.

"We live in amazing times of change in the delivery of the audiovisual experience," said festival co-director Alan Jones, "but festivals like the GFF and FrightFest remain constant and committed to bringing all of these advances together for lively debate, because the magic of cinema knows no boundaries."

The event will run from 7 to 9 March as part of the Glasgow Film Festival.
